Download as PDF 21356 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 76 / Thursday, April 22, 2021 / Notices OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within the scope of recognition. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition includes: (1) The type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by the applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product-testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope. Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides a preliminary finding. In the second notice, the agency provides a final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational web page for each NRTL, including MET, which details the NRTL’s scope of recognition. These pages are available from the OSHA website at http://www.osha.gov/ dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html. MET currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with the headquarters located at: MET Laboratories, Inc., 914 West Patapsco Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21230. A complete list of MET’s scope of recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ met.html. II. General Background on the Application MET submitted one application, dated May 11, 2018 (OSHA–2006–0028–0046), to expand the recognition to include one additional test standard. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. Table 1, below, lists the appropriate test standard found in MET’s application for expansion for testing and certification of products under the NRTL Program.

This preliminary finding does not constitute an interim or temporary approval of MET’s applications. OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether MET meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of the recognition as a NRTL. Comments should consist of pertinent written documents and exhibits. Commenters needing more time to comment must submit a request in writing, stating the reasons for the request. Commenters must submit the written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA will limit any extension to 10 days unless the requester justifies a longer period. OSHA may deny a request for an extension if the request is not adequately justified. To obtain or review copies of the exhibits identified in this notice, as well as comments submitted to the docket, contact the Docket Office. These materials also are available online at http:// www.regulations.gov under Docket No. OSHA–2006–0028. OSHA staff will review all comments to the docket submitted in a timely manner and, after addressing the issues raised by these comments, will make a recommendation to the Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health whether to grant MET’s applications for expansion of the scope of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will make the final decision on granting the application.

OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification of the products. The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides a preliminary finding and, in the second notice, the agency provides the final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational web page for each NRTL that details its scope of recognition. These pages are available from the agency’s website at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. BVCPS currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with headquarters located at: Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services, Inc., One Distribution Circle, Suite #1, Littleton, MA 01460. A complete list of BVCPS’s scope of recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ csl.html. BVCPS submitted an application, dated June 28, 2018 (OSHA–2009– 0026–0083), to expand recognition to include the addition of two recognized testing and certification sites. BVCPS amended this application on May 20, 2020, to include the addition of twentyone recognized test standards.

The first new site is located at: Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (H.K.) Ltd. Taoyuan Branch, No. 19, Hwa Ya 2nd Rd., Wen Hwa Vil., Kewi Shan Dist., Taoyuan City, Taiwan. The second new site is located at: LCIE China Company Limited, Building 4, No. 518, Xin Zhuan Road, CaoHejiing Songjiang High-Tech Park, Shanghai 201612 China. OSHA staff performed on-site reviews of BVCPS Shanghai, China’s testing facility on February 27–28, 2019 and BVCPS Taoyuan Branch’s testing facility on March 5–6, 2019, in which the assessors found some non-conformances with the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7. BVCPS addressed these non-conformances satisfactorily, and OSHA made a preliminary decision to approve the application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing BVCPS’s expansion application in the Federal Register on 21357 February 23, 2021 (86 FR 11001). The agency requested comments by March 10, 2021, but received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of BVCPS’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to BVCPS’s application, go to http:// www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N–3653, Washington, DC 20210.

Please note: Due to the COVID–19 pandemic, the Docket Office is closed to the public at this time but can be contacted at (202) 693–2350. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined BVCPS’s expansion application, the capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that BVCPS meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of the recognition, subject to the specified limitations, and conditions listed. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant BVCPS’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of BVCPS’s recognition to include the sites at Shanghai, China and Taoyuan City, Taiwan, in addition to the testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed below in Table 1.

ACTION: 60-Day notice; request for comments. AGENCY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) invites public comment on a new proposed information collection request that the agency will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval. This document describes the collection of information for which the MCC intends to seek OMB approval. The purpose of this notice is to allow for 60 days of public comment preceding submission of the collection request to OMB. DATES: Comments are due by June 21, 2021. SUMMARY: Please send all written comments by email to James Porter, Chief Information Officer, pra@mcc.gov. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, written comments are not being received by mail or fax. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Porter, Chief Information Officer, MCC, pra@mcc.gov, 202–521–3716. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for MCC’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the proposed collection; (c) ways for MCC to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection and your comments will become a matter of public record. ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Title of Information Collection: MCC Restricted Data Use Application. OMB Control Number: Not assigned. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Researchers, including university and college faculty and students, who will use this data for statistical analysis. Total Estimated Number of Respondents: Approximately 50 new respondents are expected annually to access MCC-funded restricted data. Frequency: One application for each restricted data package for which access is requested by a respondent. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 90 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 4500 hours total. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: There are no costs to respondents other than their time. Respondents’ Obligation: Voluntary reply. Abstract: MCC is committed to providing public access to high-value data collected as part of the development, implementation, and evaluation of MCC-funded assistance programs, while being equally committed to protecting the confidentiality of individuals and organizations from which the data are collected. To achieve these twin aims, MCC publishes de-identified public use files of microdata on its website through the MCC Evaluation Catalog. In addition, MCC plans to make restricted data files available in cases where the de-identification efforts for public use files would significantly impair the analytic potential of the data, or where the data contain highly sensitive information that cannot be shared as a public-use file. However, access to restricted data will only be granted to users who meet eligibility criteria and agree to terms of access established by MCC, including agreeing to follow strict requirements for maintaining data confidentiality. The MCC Restricted Data Use Application collects information that will be used by MCC and its data steward, the University of Michigan’s Interagency Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), to evaluate whether respondents qualify for access to MCC’s restricted data. The application, which will be submitted electronically, requires the provision of specific information by the respondent, such as (i) the name, contact information, and CV/Resume/Biosketch for each person that will access the restricted data, (ii) a research proposal describing the need for the data and how it will be used, (iii) evidence of Institutional Review Board approval or E:\FR\FM\22APN1.SGM 22APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of Bureau Veritas Consumer Product Services (BVCPS) as a 
NRTL. BVCPS's expansion covers the addition of two recognized test 
sites and twenty-one

[[Page 21357]]

recognized test standards to the scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an 
acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety 
testing and certification of the specific products covered within its 
scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government 
authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products 
properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require 
testing and certification of the products.
    The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial 
recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following 
requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires 
that the agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in 
processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the 
application and provides a preliminary finding and, in the second 
notice, the agency provides the final decision on the application. 
These notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or 
modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational web page 
for each NRTL that details its scope of recognition. These pages are 
available from the agency's website at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    BVCPS currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification, with headquarters located at: Bureau 
Veritas Consumer Products Services, Inc., One Distribution Circle, 
Suite #1, Littleton, MA 01460. A complete list of BVCPS's scope of 
recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/csl.html.
    BVCPS submitted an application, dated June 28, 2018 (OSHA-2009-
0026-0083), to expand recognition to include the addition of two 
recognized testing and certification sites. BVCPS amended this 
application on May 20, 2020, to include the addition of twenty-one 
recognized test standards. The amended application listed an additional 
standard, UL 962, which is already included in BVCPS's NRTL scope of 
recognition and will not be considered in this notice. The first new 
site is located at: Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (H.K.) 
Ltd. Taoyuan Branch, No. 19, Hwa Ya 2nd Rd., Wen Hwa Vil., Kewi Shan 
Dist., Taoyuan City, Taiwan. The second new site is located at: LCIE 
China Company Limited, Building 4, No. 518, Xin Zhuan Road, CaoHejiing 
Songjiang High-Tech Park, Shanghai 201612 China. OSHA staff performed 
on-site reviews of BVCPS Shanghai, China's testing facility on February 
27-28, 2019 and BVCPS Taoyuan Branch's testing facility on March 5-6, 
2019, in which the assessors found some non-conformances with the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7. BVCPS addressed these non-conformances 
satisfactorily, and OSHA made a preliminary decision to approve the 
application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing BVCPS's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on February 23, 2021 (86 FR 11001). 
The agency requested comments by March 10, 2021, but received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of BVCPS's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
BVCPS's application, go to http://www.regulations.gov or contact the 
Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. 
Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N-3653, 
Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA-2009-0026 contains all materials 
in the record concerning BVCPS's recognition. Please note: Due to the 
COVID-19 pandemic, the Docket Office is closed to the public at this 
time but can be contacted at (202) 693-2350.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined BVCPS's expansion application, the capability 
to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that BVCPS 
meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of the 
recognition, subject to the specified limitations, and conditions 
listed. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant 
BVCPS's scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of BVCPS's 
recognition to include the sites at Shanghai, China and Taoyuan City, 
Taiwan, in addition to the testing and certification of products for 
demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed below in

    OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is 
limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require 
third-party testing and certification before using them in the 
workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products 
for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the 
test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, 
for convenience, the use of the designation of the standards-developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation may 
occur. Under the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, 
Appendix C, paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test 
standard may use either the proprietary version of the test standard or 
the ANSI version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a 
test standard is currently ANSI-approved.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
BVCPS must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. BVCPS must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the 
change(s);
    2. BVCPS must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. BVCPS must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on BVCPS's scope of 
recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
scope of recognition of BVCPS, subject to the limitations and 
conditions specified above.
